Lyle Blackburn is an author, musician, and cryptid hunter from Texas. His investigative cryptozoology books, "The Beast of Boggy Creek" and "Lizard Man," reflect his life-long fascination with legends and sighting reports of real-life 'monsters.' During his research, Lyle has often explored the remote reaches of the southern U.S. in search of shadowy creatures said to inhabit the dense backwoods and swamplands of these areas.
We talked with Lyle about his latest book, Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster. Lyle was on before back in March talking about his book, The Beast of Boggy Creek, and you can listen to that show in the Archive here.
Lyle is also a staff writer and cryptozoology adviser to RUE MORGUE magazine, one of the leading horror media publications in print today.
Lyle is a featured speaker at cryptozoology and horror conferences around North America. He has been heard on numerous radio programs, including COAST TO COAST, and has appeared on television shows such as MONSTERS & MYSTERIES IN AMERICA, FINDING BIGFOOT, and the CBS SUNDAY MORNING SHOW.
